  • This is a nice public beach. You will need to watch you back packs and for drunk locals. The beach was not overly crowded, it was very nice. Father’s a Rooster is located on the beach, it is like a scene from a movie. If you are in the area, you need to check it out.
  • Great place. Must visit Father Roosters.
  • Beautiful black sand beaches with lots of native corals that have washed up. Great snorkeling opportunities all around the beach.

  • Beautiful beach. Very clean
